Turkey to join South Africa's genocide case against Israel at World Court

Turkiye will participate in South Africa’s genocide lawsuit against Israel at the International Court of Justice (ICJ), according to Turkish Foreign Minister Hakan Fidan’s announcement on Wednesday.

“We will submit the declaration of official intervention before the ICJ to implement this political decision Upon completion of the legal text of our work,” Fidan declared at a joint press conference in Ankara with Indonesia’s Foreign Minister Retno Marsudi.

“Turkiye will continue to support the Palestinian people in all circumstances,” he stated.
Following South Africa’s allegation that Israel was leading a state-sponsored genocide in Gaza, the International Court of Justice (ICJ) ordered Israel to create a new tab in January and to ensure that its troops do not perform any acts that could be considered violations of the Genocide Convention against Palestinians.

President Tayyip Erdogan announced in January that Turkiye was supplying the World Court, or ICJ, with documents for the case.

The claim was viewed as baseless by Israel and its Western admirers. It may take years for the International Court of Justice to rule in South Africa’s case.
